. >> that is right, second straight day, jay carney was pressed on whether or not the president misled the country, they pressed on this, they know they're under siege, they say anybody one, this is only 5% in terms of the people who buy their insurance and are getting cancellation letters. but as you know, 5% equals about 14 million people potentially that could get these letters, that is a huge chunk of the market, even though it is just 5%. secondly, they said what the president meant was, not what he said, was you could keep your own plan, if you had your own plan before march of 2010, signed into law, you wouldn't be affected. and after that, you're essentially on your own. the problem is, they're adding all of these contexts and qualifiers, the thing the president did not mention. here is jay carney. >> do the president's words matter? >> well, all i ask of fox and everybody else is to provide the context? >> he didn't provide the context back then. >> there has been essentially five years of debate. >> last year, valerie jared sent out a tweet and said in her words nothing in obama care for
initially come out high. their tax subsidies available. let me play for you what jay carney said this morning to your point about young people and whether they'll sign up. >> there's a silver lining here when it comes to young people an young people are important to this working. it was always the case, no matter how good the website was going to be, that young americans were going to be the last group to sign up. i don't know about you in college or everything i did when i was young as last minute. >> well, i'm with jay carney on that one to the extent that i was a procrastinator and never wrote my paper until the last paper. does he have a point, though, we don't know right now that the accusations you're making are speculative? >> here's what we know, chris. and i think we can find common ground here. we know that we were promised that this website would be working great and it's not and it is a total mess. >> and the white house would concede that. >> we know that the president promised -- okay, fine. they keep saying and they keep saying. we know that the president promised
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu
the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even lightning with the storm. it's a strong line of storms with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour. winds are 36 in philly. 39 in buffalo. a windy day. it's very warm. feels like the spring feel with the humidity. when the front goes through, bad weather with it. you don't want to be under big trees with the winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. the rain is early today in the east. it's when the worst airport delays wil
. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now
jay carney finally acknowledged yesterday that to some extent that promise is being broken. watch this. >> so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that doesn't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that is substandard. martha: meanwhile republican senator ted cruz, raising concerns over people not only losing their current insurance, but losing their jobs over obamacare. watch this. >> one. real problems with obamacare is people all over the country are losing their health insurance because of obamacare. you've got millions of people who are losing their jobs, who are being forced into part-time work, who are seeing health insurance premiums skyrocket and whose insurance is being canceled right now because of obamacare. listen -- >> any other issue but you chose this one? >> it is number one job killer in the country. martha: now we're starting to see the actual effects of all of this in numbers with hundreds of thousands of peopl
person signed up. jay carney had an answer though. listen to his explanation for these numbers. watch. >> what you have learned from selected cherry picked leaks from republican committee is that there are notes out there from a contractor that make estimates about figures related to enrollees in the early days of this process. the web site wasn't functioning very well on october 1st or october 2nd. in fact, it hasn't been functioning well in the first month since the launch. if the implication from this disclosure is that the web site wasn't working effectively on october 1st. i think that is a dog bites man story. we know that. and when we have fully compiled data about enrollment in the middle of this month for october. we're going to release it. >> how long does it take to get data from a web site. can i look up any web site. >> it has to work, first. >> you can find out who is on the site instantly. they claim they don't have these numbers. they are mad that the numbers that they don't have leaked. >> sometimes i feel sorry for jay carney sometimes i just look you are in a no-win
're gathering so much we don't know what we're gathering. the president doesn't even know, what's the point? jay carney today was, frankly, apologetic. they said they're going to go ahead and make some changes. let me play just as jay described it. >> we recognize that there need to be additional constraints on how we gather and use intelligence. >> so does he have a point? that there should be additional constraints? or is that basically unilaterally disarming as someone told me today, that the u.s., if it backs down now and stops doing this monitoring, it would be very damaging possibly for the security of the u.s. as well as its allies? >> what he said was the diplomatic correct thing to say. the executive branch is in charge of this. they know what they've got to look at in order to keep america safe. this is not a partisan issue. this is a bipartisan issue. we all agree that we've got to do the kind of intelligence gathering that we do in order to keep americans safe. >> so you don't think they're going to back off unnecessarily. they're going to say the right thing, but they're going to do
theresa, some are jumping on a statement by white house press secretary jay carney today as alleged proof that the president is seizing health care from honest americans. take a listen to this. >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. maternity care is covered, prevent active services are comfort, mental health services are covered. the insurance policy you buy doesn't have an annual limit or lifetime limit. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards, and therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> so people won't be able to be ripped off by substandard plans. what a pit. but is this the line of -- is this line of attack proof that the website will be fixed and republicans then will really have to move on? >> not only do they realize that. let's take a step back and see who they put ahead now to fix this -- the computer glitch. it's jeff zients. jeff zients headed up the advisory board, a health care company that pulled together best prac
. >> jay carney at the briefing effectively said -- >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. >> they can't be dropped for a richer package of benefits. >> maternity care, mental health services. >> this is government-run health care. >> i'll never stop fighting to help more hard-working americans know the economic security of health care. ♪ >> don't you worry. we will get to health care momentarily. but it is a very busy day in the capitol with a double dose of major congressional hearings, and challenges on twin fronts for the president. issue number one. oversight of the nsa.
house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen, thank you very much. the shooting at l.a.x. is, of course, affecting air travel everywhere else. that is, perhaps, the least of the issues with one person dead and several injured. but that is something that a
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
rollout, we are learning that six people were able to sign up on day one. yesterday, jay carney said this is a dog bite man's story as we talk about health care but yet this is a big deal and we're learning more. is it accurate or wise i should say for the white house to downplay this as dog bite's man? >> i think they have to accept the fact this was a big screw up. i think new york mayor laguardia said when i make a mistake, it's a butte. this is something the president cares about more than anything in his legacy, the major contribution he has made to the social safety net. it will ultimately succeed, but it only succeed if he keeps his credibility. i think it's important as we go through this rocky period he is seen the man you go to. he always has to tell the whole truth. bobby kennedy used to say hang a lantern on your problem and let people know what your problem is so they will begin to trust you more. real quickly a yes or no. do you think the president needs to come out and talk more about this? >> no. i think he needs to be candid about the fact the issue is still this one
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
media just happens to be shocked by it as well. >> sure. >> jay carney is like wrestling cats, as they say. they used to want to focus on ed henry. now you have every reporter putting up their hand and you can't say, well, fox, the people at fox. now he's got to play it straight and answer these questions. and the president's going to have trouble shaking his repeated statements about keeping their plan. because the people he wrote were grandfathered into the plan, you can't force an insurance company to continue to insure someone if their math doesn't add up. >> because they squeezed the language in there with obamacare, whereas before they say, you could keep your insurance. no one will have to get out of it. they have to keep you. well, no, there is language in there that says if they even change their co-pay to $5 more, they can drop you. >> they're out. >> that's what's happening. >> a total escape from responsibility here in terms of keeping those that are insured and we're going to maybe hear some answers from kathleen sebelius. who knows? those that are going to questi
enough to say that -- >> they haven't contested the numbers. jay carney came out on friday and presented these numbers. >> you're a web master. you're a master of many things. you're also a web master. you were on the daily call.com. fantastic political website. if i wanted to know, tucker, how many people visited your site between the 8:00 a.m. hour and 9:00 a.m. hour on sunday, can you tell me that? >> i can tell you how many people are on the site right now, where they live, probably some other information. it's really easy. anybody who knows anything about the web will tell you, this is the whole point. every data point is measurable. we know everything. so we don't know? untrue. >> more news this morning and you're going to sit at home today and watch some nfl football, you might not know what's been going on wind the scenes, specifically with the players union, the players association that handles sort of the emotional well being of the nfl players. of course, they've been dealing lately with all the concussion issues in the nfl. you think that would be top priority for them right
